Description:


    The OmniGlobe is a large acrylic globe (up to 80 inches in diameter) with a self-contained high intensity projector built into its supporting base. Essentially a “spherical monitor,” the OmniGlobe may be used to display any type of data that fits well into a spherical format, such as whole-Earth satellite data sets. A true 360-degree display system, the only obscured spot on the sphere is a small area at the top that is generally out of sight of the viewer.
